Our school libraries, the Documentation Center (BCD) and Documentation and Information Center (CDI) are places where students and teachers read, access information and work. More than a library, a source of inspiration
Primary school libraries (BCD)
The BCDs are our primary school libraries. They are distinct from the small libraries that each teacher creates in class.
Updating your knowledge is a vital skill to have nowadays. Our BCDs allow your children to develop reading and research skills autonomously. Our students learn to vary their readings according to their projects: reading for fun, reading to inform, reading entire texts, skim reading.
They become aware that there is not just one type of reading, nor one type of writing, and that information is conveyed via a range of media. With the help of our librarian teachers, Ms Valérie DISPAGNE and Laurence BOICHOT, your child becomes more active in their reading process, and gains self-confidence. In our BCD, children not only develop cognitive skills, they also learn to communicate. The BCDs are places of socialization where we learn to listen, to respect and help others. It is a place of social interaction.
Kindergarten BCD : Monday to Thursday 8am to 11am, and from 1.30pm to 3pm. Friday from 8am to 11am.
Elementary BCD: everyday from 7.45am to 5pm.
Middle and High School Library (IDC)
The IDC is our Information and Documentation Center.
Why come to the IDC? All middle and high school students are welcome in our Information and Documentation Center.
A place to read
In this completely renovated 230 m² space that is open to the entire LFRD community, the IDC offers students a wide range documents: novels (classics, children’s literature, in foreign languages, etc.), documentary books, plays , poetry collections , tales, comics, magazines. Students may read documents on the spot or borrow them.
The IDC is open to students during office hours, canteen time, recess or study. A variety of resources are available through different paper media(textbooks, dictionaries, encyclopedias) and digital media (CD-ROM, DVD, Internet). The teacher-librarian accompanies and guides the students in their work (homework, research).
Using and Passing on Information
Students can also come to the IDC as part of educational sessions conducted in collaboration with a teacher on various subjects. It is also at the CDI that middle and high school students are trained in IML Information and Media Literacy, and in the principles of “Documentary Research”. They get acquainted with various documentary tools, with information collection(research in books and on the Internet), with using and passing on this information (note taking, synthesis, production of files, presentations, etc.). They also acquire working methods in order to promote their autonomy and develop their critical thinking, which will enable them to evaluate information critically.
Information center for career guidance
To help students with their career decisions, the IDC provides them with documentation on studies, diplomas and trades. Access to the “Parcoursup” orientation assistance software, as well as to numerous websites (ONISEP, Les métiers. Net, etc.) is also offered.
Many cultural events mark out the year at the IDC: press week, poetry, exhibitions of student work, competitions, presentation of books around a theme …
Students can fully satisfy their personal curiosity. The IDC provides a wide range of resources needed for the students’ academic success and helps shape future citizens. It supports students in their learning, in gaining autonomy and contributes to their cultural and artistic literacy.
The IDC is open every day:
Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also during the lunch break to allow everyone to come and read, work or borrow documents freely.
